Goats are neutral tamable mobs found in the Overworld.
Goats spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation, which includes males, females and baby Goats.
Goats come in a range of colors, such as white, grey, and brown.
Goats have a chance to drop 0-2 Leather when killed.
Goats are one of the few mobs that are separated by gender; both males and females have different behavior.
If attacked by the player, a male Goat will ram at him/her using their horns. Males have much larger horns than female Goats, and while females can be milked, males can not. If the player attempts to milk a male Goat, it will attack the player.
A Goat will follow the player if the player holds any edible item in hand. Goats can also be led around on a Lead, but the Goat may eat the Lead if it breaks. Goats will eat any nearby items that are dropped onto the ground.
Male Goats will fight between themselves, but they don't take damage by doing so. This is characterized by the Goats lowering their heads, raising their tails and charging at each other.
When a Goat gets knocked back by another Goat, it is possible for one to get knocked over a fence, so a higher wall or separation of males would be suggested for containment.
When harvesting Wheat, Potatoes, Carrots, Pumpkins or Melons, be sure there are no Goats nearby or else they will eat them.
Goats can be tamed by feeding them any edible food item. The Goat will then be able to be named. To change the Goat's name, right-click on it whilst holding a Book or a Medallion. To heal a hurt Goat, it can be fed with any edible item.
Goats cannot be bred.
- Decreased frequency of Goat bleats.
- Fixed bug with invisible Ropes on Goats.
- Goats are no longer tamed by food they find, the player has to give them food by right clicking on them so they become tamed.
- Goat size changed so they can fit through doors.
- Added Goats.
- Since Goats eat any item on the ground, this can be very useful for the player if he/she has lots of unneeded items (such as Dirt or Leather) and doesn't know where to dispose of them.
